Message to StudentsMeteorology and climate science are closely related to daily life and cover wide area including daily weather, natural disaster, air pollution, climate change, global warming, and heat island. Learning Meteorology enables one to understand the cause of today’s rain and furthermore to predict whether it is going to rain tomorrow. We can conduct both basic studies to understand cause of Meteorological phenomena such as typhoons, and application of Meteorology to other fields such as business, disaster prevention, politics and so on. Particularly, the latter topic is still under developing, and hence I do hope to study the new topic with your fresh ideas.
